Sort of.
Be careful what you are asking for, Bim.

It can be "viewers discretion advised" kind of thing.

MB, you are a great role model of recovery for me. Many regulars on this list are.

We really can grow up, can't we?

Congratulations on 4 months MantaLady, it's great knowing you won't be facing those cravings every day or even every week by now.

That is good news about your hand MidnightBlue, I would imagine you can get your hand wet in the shower in between changing dressings as you will dry it straight after prior to putting on a new one.

Glad you feel better Willow.

Cars can be painful bim, I hope it's OK now.

I feel like I have been messed about all day by some of my clients. I fantasise about winning the lottery and telling them what I think about them

I caught something from one of the Thanks Giving Dinner rug rats. One of em's in grade one and it's her duty to bring home all the bugs. Didn't go to work today, lay'n about instead. I tried to telecommute, but it didn't last long.

Daughter finished her fourth shift last night and boss lady invited her to join the stores employee chat group. Double yay! a job and socializing. She has plans to buy a wrist watch with her first pay, they have to put thier phones away (*snicker*).

The conversation about MB's hand brought back a memory of mom bagging our injured extremities in bread bags and elastic bands. Can't get it wet, but cutting off all blood circulaton was fine....

That's wonderful about your daughter's boss inviting her to join the chat group, Dragon!

Feel better soon!

Well done junior Dragon!

This is a bit irritating, I don't often eat ready meals. I suppose I should have read below the top line. Too late now i've eaten them and i'm not going back to Day 1.

And neither you should Sao.

The art school I go to has sent an e-memo around, threatening to charge any student using a phone in class with serious misconduct. Given the cameras. Life drawing models (nudies) and photographing other's work.

Dragon those rug rats sure are little germ factories in a big way
I hope you get better quickly!
Congratulations for your daughter I think it’s great when phones are banned People (especially young ones) are way too attached to their phones these days, they don’t give themselves time to disconnect so they’re constantly on high alert and get anxious, depressed and stressed. IMO anyway

I’m seeing the grief counsellor again today. I miss Mum and Dad like crazy and still get swamped by waves of grief but I think it’s helping me to talk through it. My mood swings have been a bit overwhelming. Overall I think I’m going ok though

Yesterday the AV tried really hard to romanticise previous drinking sessions (in particular a couple of friends’ 40th birthday parties a number of years ago) and tried to convince me how great it would be to “let my hair down like that and party occasionally”. I almost fell for it! I could feel myself getting reeled in to the AV’s fantasy world of happy drinking parties. I reminded myself and the AV of the horrendous hangovers after those parties and many others.... I’ll have to watch out for complacency....

Happy Friday everyone
